Staff in any organisation, large or small,
are motivated when three elements are present. When they believe the work that
they do is worthwhile, when they’re in control of achieving their own goals and
when they’re recognised or appreciated for their efforts.
46% of people leave
jobs because they feel unappreciated. People generally don’t leave companies;
they leave managers. By having a Coach in a work situation, the
lid is taken off the pressure cooker, staff can discuss issues as they arise.
Through working with staff and with the management team, strategies can
be put in place that fit the organisation and achieve the goals that management
wish to achieve for that business.
Having personal values in line with

What is workplace coaching?
Coaching is about building on potential. Coaching is about
having a vision for how you want things to be. Coaching is about working out
what you want and then systematically achieving that through creating new
goals. Coaching is asking questions rather than telling. Coaching is a
conversation with a purpose resulting in the staff member setting goals to
develop skills, enhance performance and/or develop personally and
professionally. Coaching looks to the future. Coaching embraces change and
allows individuals to grow through it. Coaching facilitates a shift in attitude
and perspective and enhances emotional intelligence. Coaching can become a
positive culture in an organisation – “simply the way we do things around here”.
What coaching isn’t
Coaching isn’t counselling or training.
Coaching doesn’t focus on problems. Coaching is a perk, not a punishment!
Coaching isn’t supervision with a different name. Coaching isn’t telling someone what to do or how to do it.
Individuals within the organisation and
the organisation itself benefit from workplace coaching. High achievers, low performers, front-line staff,
talented staff, management, team leaders, technical staff, creative staff.
Coaching allows people to shine!
